A ketogenic diet is rich in natural fats and includes a moderate amount of protein. It restricts foods that are high in sugar and starchy carbohydrates, such as rice, breads, pastries, pasta, cereal and biscuits, and potatoes.
Instead, the emphasis is on eating more legumes, vegetables, some fruit, lean chicken, red meat, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds and also increasing the consumption of good fats such as olive oil, coconut oil and avocados.
